The attention of the council is cale1d
to a most abominable nuisance which is
permitted in this town, and it is grow-e
inz worre. we refer to the practice o' it
boys, mainly negro boys.. making un
earthly.noises which they call whist- h
fing, they invariably make it a point to
whistle as loud as they can as they
pass white people engaged in conversa- d
tion. The council should instruct the
police to abate this nuisance for if it is
allowed to continue it will result in trou
bile. No man wants to strike a boy just t
because he is whistling, but when it is b
done for impertinance it is almost be
yond endurance, therefore we say, m- v
struct the police to stop it. NOW. e
Whoever it is should stop it. To t
place nails in the public road for the b:
purpose of injuring automobiles is a
piece of vandalism which should be
severely punished. On the road to
Sumter Monday the writer was in
Capt. Davis' car, and just above Mr. h
John Bredon's one of the tires was di
punctured by a nail which had every it
appearance of having been purposely it
laced in the road, and on returning, b
on this side of Mr. Brozdon's within ti
100 yards of his house the very same fc
thing occured again, causing much e:
delay and expense to the owner of the y<
machine. The persons doing this mis- it
chief do not realize what they are doing a
or they would stop it. ol
The attention of our readers is called w
to the advertisement of Mr. R. R. Jen- 01
kinson who is now opening up his stock te

Brown Block. .lenkinson has had a fo
life time experienee in the dry goods R.
business. He has spent most of that ci
time right here in Manning. he should,
and does know the needs of the people.
He has started to build up a business, is
to do so there is none who realizc more
than he what must de done to have the
trade come to him, and to stay with
him after it gives him a trial. Read
what b has to say in this issue of THE

There -vas a citizens meeting held in f
the cour:, house last Friday afternoon
called for the purpose of getting Man
ning in touch with the authorities of
the Seaboard railway company. Mr.
E. C. Horton Acting Mayor was called ci
to the chair, and after stating the ob
ject of the meeting it was decided to
anpoint a committee, Messrs. E. C.
nrton, W. C. Davis and Louis Appelt
to get into communication with the ui
proper authorities to requ4est a fa
meetmng with them that the claims tb
of this town might be placed be- fo
fore them to induce the railroad m
road to comn to Mlanning. When this of
conference has been had it will then P
be known wbether or not Manning has ti
a chance to secure the road coming tb
here; if the committee gets encourage- R
ment a general mass meeting will be re
called. It is to this town's interest .to tb
get this additional transportation facil
ty, we . nnot afford to let it go by us in
matters not what the requirements of pc
the road is, whatever they are. within hi
reason, and the town's ability the ci: to
zens must get together to bring it here. se
Every business man and every owner w;
of property and wage earner should fo
put his shoulder to the wheel to lend lo
his aid to this all important project. PC
It is our opinion the Seaboard is com- m
ing into Clarendon on its way to the fa
coast, and ittwould be a misfortune did bI
the citizens of this town not take an p:
active interest to get it to come to the fr
eounty seat. We believe the people J
here realize the importance of this re
movement and they will do their share in
in helping to induce the road to come tt
to Manning. C,

4t.has been remarked, there is a mys- a,
terious power guiding the fate of Willie nm
Bethune, the negro condemned to die tr
for the killing of Mir. G. B. Mims, and ne
itegins to look like it. Bethune was to'
have been hanged next Friday, but
through the ingenuity of his lawyer, J.
. Clifton, Esq., Judge S. W. G. Shipp, Fj
who on June 6th sentenced Betbune to di
be hanged, intervened, and granted a t
stay of the execution, pending a motion se
to be made at the September term of w

A DAY'S ENJOYIENT.
Some people do not like picnics-that

ers are bundled off. If any in this
ck o' the woods entertain such ideas
.eir absence was not noted, for, in the
nguage of the street, "everybody and

MESSRS. FRASER AND PAYNE.
In declaring that it was a day of pleas
-e, it would be an incomplete and un
ir declaration were it not mentioned
at for the enjoyment and general comn
rt of the visitors, none c,.ntributed
ore than did Mr. D). E. Fraser, cashier
the Bank of Olanta, and Mr. P. J.
lyne, manager of the Olanta Me'rean
e Companv. It should be noted also
at Mr.'D. WV. Alderman, of the Alcolu
a~ilroad, exerted every effort to furnisn
ady and comfortable transportation to
e many whbo came by rail.
Mr. D. E. Fraser has the honor of be
o cashier of the bank that made 45
r cent clear profit on its last year's
siness. He came to Olanta'when the
wn was quite young; indeed, when he
t down his grip and looked about there
is nothing here but a pump and hopes
r the future. The woods were rather
nelv and Mr. Fraser gave up his bank
sition and tried farming for about ten
nutes, he didn't like it, even after so
ithful and fair a trial. So here he is
.ck in his old position. To-aay his
incipal business was providing re
eshing comfort for the visitors. Mr. P.
Payne is quite a young fellow, but his
markable business ability keeps him
the responsible position of managing
e affairs of the big John McSween
mpany. One first impression of Mr.
iyne is that "he's a hustler." To-day

Mr. Manning dealt quite at length
th the causes that led up to the war,
carig the first protective tariti,
alch was authorized soon after the war

effected the breach. Considering pres
it day conditions, Mr. Manning deplor
the fact that in the stupendous under

it~hful to themselves as individuals,
Ld neglected community duty. There
not that care now that once was in the
letion of public ofliciais; tihere is not

onsibilities, and consequently the comn
unity and the State suffer, declared
The speakers won hearty applause
on the crowd that thronged the pa
lion. This is the third consecutive
ar that Mr. Manning has been invited
speak at Olanta. It was a matter of
acere regret that Senator Tillmnan was
t able to be present.
The reunion of Company H, 20th South
trolina Volunteers, to-day was from
o standpoint of membership, not as
rge as it has been on many former oc
.sions, for their numbers are fast thin
g out. death having visited their

The committee to confer with the Sea
board officials having received informa
tion that they would be in Sumter Mon
day afternoon, left here for that city as
soon as they got the message, but were
unfortunate in missing the party by
about forty minutes. Mr. Bonsal the gen
eral manager of the Seaboard, with his
party of capitalists reached Sumter
about 1 o'clock and left at 4 o'clock for
Hartsville and Bishopville. Our commit
tee 2omposed of Captain W. C. Davis.
acting Mayor E. C. Horton and Louis
Appelt, would have reached Sumter in
time to have had a short conference with
the gentlemen had it not been for some
nails placed in the road that punctured
one of the tires of Capt. Davis' car, this
delayed us nearly an hour and caused us
to miss the party.
The people of Manning may expect
the Seaboard to come here, it is almost
a certainty that it will go to Sumter, we
do not think there is the least doubt of
it, and when it gets there we are sat
isfed it will make for Ferguson over the
Santee, to do this, by a very slight de
flection, the road will come here, an air
line would carry it through the Davis
Station section but we think the com
mittee will be able to show that the
road cannot afford to pass by so impor
tant a point as Manning.
This is the most important movement
ever attempted for the further develop
ment of this town and the nearby coun
try, and when the time comes we must
go 'into the project as Sumter is doing,
determined to have the road let it cost
what it will. Sumter does not know
what the cost to it will be,. the road will
say what it requires, and Sumter will
comply, so must Manning do. and we be
lieve will, we want the road and must
